The Amazing Alem & Beatbox Fozzy Just Met – Pt. 2

Saturday, June 13th, 2015

This one is for all the beatbox heads out there. Back in 2013, Fozzy found out that France’s own incredible Alem, a true champion of the the art of beatboxing, was in the neighbourhood. So they met up. The first video of that was pretty popular. You check it out here if you haven’t already: Alem & Beatbox Fozzy Just Met Pt.1

So we were looking through the vaults the other day and realised we had footage from later on that night just before they were going on stage to perform. They were both backstage playing about and riffing off each other and we managed to catch a little of it on camera. It’s a little rough around the edges but they were enjoying themselves so much it felt a crime not to share it with you.

But if your appetite still needs feeding, here are more Fozzy videos to feast on:

Beatbox Fozzy - Jah Rastafishi Sessions 2

This year’s been a good one for Fozzy with his re-emergence back onto the international beatboxing circuit at the end of last year with his incredible video alongside one of the world’s finest in France’s Alem. And following his appearance against a heap of the world’s finest at this years ’7 To Smoke’ Battles in Belgium his reputation as one of the UK’s best is firmly back in place.

So feeling good, he’s hit us up with his new ‘Jah Rastafishi Sessions’ featuring him rev up his motor mouth and just jam for the fun of it. Enjoy!

NEW VIDEO: BAKERY’S SUMMER JAM SLICKNESS.

Saturday, August 23rd, 2014

Our Bakery brother’s came through with the full skate edit from the Summer Jam event and it’s packed with goodness for all the Skate heads out there from big bad Gaz Leak, Lewis Watkins, Dog, Jimmy Silver, Tom Kirkby, Nile Bridgeman, Welsh Tommy, Billy Trick and whole host of others.

There are also some other great photos from the day over on the City Surf site. Just click and scroll down on this page >>> http://citysurfshops.co.uk/skate-palestine-jam-footage/

NEW VIDEO : SUMMER JAM 2014

Saturday, August 9th, 2014

Here’s the new video promo from the first all day Summer Jam we threw back on the 12th of July with our friends from Bakery, City Surf and Spit & Sawdust skate park.

As a rule we tend to stay away from mixing political concerns with music too much. But we were recently invited by our new friends at Bakery to help them throw a fundraiser for a pretty unique kind of charity. www.skatepal.co.uk.

And it a hard one to say no to. Offering kids, living in what is undeniably a war zone, a positive outlet and welcome distraction from the hardships of daily life there. And escape is all what we all need is it not? Those moments of simple fun and pleasure that make life worth living. So we said HELL YES. And the result was a great day from start to finish. So big love to all who came down to have a good time.

We’ve had it on a promise that the actual skate edit from the day shot by the Bakery boys will be out pretty shortly too. So all the skate heads should keep an eye for that one. We’ll probably have it up on here so check back.

NEW VIDEO : BOODA FRENCH TAKES HIS TURN TO AIR OUT THE LATEST CLASSIC SERIES

Saturday, March 15th, 2014

Ahead of the release of his new 7″ Booda French takes his turn to step up to the plate and air out Ed Boogie’s remake of the classic Milkbone ‘Keep It Real’ beat. After making his name as one of the front runners on the battle scene under his former moniker ‘Truth’, he’s gone on to gain a strong following with his signature drawn out slurring, collaborating with the likes of Tanya Morgan’s Von Pea as well as just returning from a tour of UK & Europe.

Now set to release his new 7″ on 250 piece turquoise coloured vinyl. Produced by friend and long term collaborator, J57, of the much heralded Brooklyn crew, Brown Bag All Stars it’ll be distributed by the legendary Fat Beats worldwide.

“Send a message and a follow…”

NEW VIDEO: BEATBOX FOZZY & ALEM ‘JUST MET’

Saturday, November 9th, 2013

There’s something incredibly infectious about watching a person who loves their chosen art and craft, practise it in front of you. Well these two are ninjas. Ninjas that love what they do. And the result is that despite having literally just met by a pretty strange twist of fate, Fozzy’s basslines and groove combine with Alem’s incredible patterns and sharpness almost so naturally, that at times it almost looks rehearsed. Watch them at play…

2 NEW BEAUTIFUL METABEATS VIDEOS: SUN & SNOW

Sunday, November 3rd, 2013

We proudly proudly present the two brand new videos for the OG mix of Metabeats ‘Music Pt.1′ featuring the inimitable big man, Ralph Rip Shit.

Michael Aaron over at Subjective Realities has produced an incredible looking piece of film for the beautiful summer version. A video we’re really loving at AMHQ at the moment. It’s also a perfect counter balance to the raw home cut feel of the winter version shot by our own Mayor. That version was shot in freezing temperatures and cutting winds at the top of a snow capped mountain range in the Brecon Beacons’ National Park.

If you like the track you can get a free download of it here.

NB. To fully appreciate the beauty of the summer version we’d recommend watching in full 1080p.

NEW METABEATS VIDEOS: SUN? OR SNOW?

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013
Ralph Music Still 2

SUMMER? Or WINTER? You decide.

Tomorrow the TWO brand new videos for Metabeats ‘Music Pt.1′ will be premiering on the world renowned ‘Nah Right’. The track featuring the big man, Ralph Rip Shit returns with some visuals we’re really proud of and you can choose between the ‘Sun’ or ‘Snow’ videos.

They say patience is a virtue. And never has that been truer. We live in a time where everyone expects to have things instantly. Never has the pressure been greater to fire product out endlessly.

Well we’re trying to buck that trend and spend a little time with our music. And this one was a real challenge. We had to bide our time and wait for the perfect moments, battling blizzards on top of mountains, serious minus temperatures and freezing winds. So you can choose between the raw, Super 8 feel of the Winter cut, or the incredible, warm and creative switch up of the Summer version.

Ed Boogie & Metabeats – Behind The Scenes @ The Barnyard

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

Metabeats was up at Ed Boogie’s ‘Barnyard’ studio the other day, working on some new ideas together. If you love music there’s really nothing quite like being in a studio in the flesh and seeing (and feeling) a new track come together from scratch.

We’re lucky that we get to see that all the time and maybe even take that blessing for granted sometimes. So we decided to appreciate their talent for what it is, and try give you a glimpse behind closed doors to watch them at play…

2 NEW VIDS FEATURING MUSIC BY METABEATS & ED BOOGIE

NEW VIDEO: Sonnyjim ‘The Classics Series’ – Pt.3

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

Download Sonny’s ‘Classics Series’ here

We’re fussy who we hang with. Always have been. We don’t beg friends and you won’t find us ‘networking’ for the sake of it. We care about those who are about their craft and have a personality to match it. We hunt out those special folk like prey. And Sonnyjim has both of those in abundance. So it was only right when we were looking to do the latest in our ‘Classics Series’, that we reached out to our extended fam to bring his own style to the plate.

See the earlier parts of the ‘Classics Series’ here:

THE CAVIAR CRACKLE COVER ARTWORK

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

A collaborative project between ourselves and some of the extended family of creatives we’ve been lucky enough to have worked with over the years. (And some new ones.)

After an intial idea between Mayor & Metabeats and themeekshall laying the type and idea out for us, we approached the incredibly talented Spike Dennis. Known for being a ‘boy who sews’ he crafts some beautifully twisted and subverted images of unicorns in stitching. No shit. So we knew he was the man we needed to tackle the gold thread embroidery. Then our friends over at Gallery Sixty Six came through generously on the framing and staining side. The touch that brings the idea on home! Finally our long term friend (and photographer don) Alex Mills took the photo to ensure it was all captured just right.

And this quick little vid was shot by our boy Huw ‘Cadillac Johnson’ Caddy.

Album is available on iTunes worldwide now.

Sunday, September 2nd, 2012

P.L.O. was recently visiting the incredibly talented Richie Hayes, the man who was the creative engine and lead singer of the critically acclaimed, but sadly no more, The Method. During a night discussing music and future projects they started to jam. Luckily we had a camera on us and were able to catch some moments on film. They’re rough and ready, but we think you’ll enjoy.

METABEATS & ODDISEE: NEWS & FREESTYLE

Saturday, June 9th, 2012

A lil’ while back on a classic UK weather day (sunny but somehow still raining!?!), Metabeats hooked up with Oddisee for a feature on his forthcoming ‘Caviar Crackle’ LP. As part of that hookup we caught a quick freestyle from Oddisee over a Meta beat he had handy. We’ve always felt, due to his talent and recognition as a producer, Oddisee’s skills as an emcee are overlooked, but he proves his way with words on this one…

The ‘Caviar Crackle’ LP will feature a hand picked list of some of the world’s finest emcees and musicians such as Action Bronson, P.L.O., Oddisee, Ralph Rip Shit, Von Pea (Tanya Morgan), Elucid, Dubbledge, Marvwon, Quelle, Che Grand, Zeroh (BLQBRD), Chuuwee, Vanity Jay and more…
